NADC Bursary Partnership

The Bursary Partnership Program encourages employers to invest in the future of northern Alberta by sponsoring a return service bursary for post-secondary students. The NADC provides matching funds of up to $3,000 per student per year. Students must apply for the bursary for each year they want to be considered. The NADC will match between $1,000 and $3,000 per student (maximum of $1,500 for a half-year program) – to a total of $6,000 per student. Higher matching funds are available for pharmacy or large animal veterinary students ($6,000 per year), nurse practitioner students ($9,000) and students enrolled in medical or dentistry school ($12,000 per year). Every student selected to receive a Partnerships Bursary must sign a return service contract. The contract commits the student to live and work in Northern Alberta for a specified amount of time upon graduation, based upon the total value of the bursary.
